Vamp by Cookie A
Needles & yarn
US 0 - 2.0 mm
Pagewood Farm Glacier Bay
0.65 skeins = 292.5 yards (267.5 meters), 100 grams

Had to go down a needle size to get gauge. This yarn is VERY tightly twisted, so it was not very pleasant to wind, but it relaxed nicely once blocked. I was worried the socks were a little too tight, but they are now probably the best-fitting pair of socks I own! I’ll get a post-blocking picture soon.

I made a change and used a short-row heel, so I was increasing every decrease row AND every even row. It caused some holes on one side of the point, so I’d probably do a heel flap if I knit these again.
